Instructions on how to export Essential Assessments online tests and import them into your SPA account.
Step 1: Login to your Essential Assessments account
Then enter your school code and password for your account. Then click sign In.
Step 5: Export Data (SPA)
Step 6: Select either 'current class' to get one class of data only or select 'entire school' school to get all classes data in one file.
The file will now be downloaded to your computer
Step 7: Import your data to SPAstandard.
Please note, the file can only successfully be upload to SPA, if the file contains student ID numbers for each student. If the file does not contain Student IDs, it means that your school has not inputted student IDs into the Essential Assessment System. Please contact Essential Assessments for help on this issue. Once resolved, you should be able to re-download the file following our instructions and successfully upload your EA data to SPA.
Also, depending on how your school has conducted EA testing, you may choose to remove some of the testing from the excel file before uploading the file to SPA. And/or shuffle the student results around in the Test1,2,3 columns to ensure you have a tidy data set.
